When Allergies Become Sinusitis
Seasonal allergies, also known as rhinitis, can be persistent and uncomfortable. But the sniffling and fuzzy brain are nothing compared with what can follow: full-blown sinusitis.

If rinses and decongestants cannot do the trick, then it’s time to speak with an expert sinus surgeon about some easy ways to alter the anatomy of the sinuses to promote better drainage.
